We are pleased to bring you this wonderful release of found sound and layered ambiance.

In August of 2009, our family traveled to Beijing, Zhengzhou, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong while on our second adoption journey. I made field recordings along the way. During the fall, I edited, layered, mixed and processed portions of the recordings for these 9 compositions. I added a guitar part to each one as a kind of commentary and reflection. The titles come from quirky English phrases I saw displayed on T-shirts worn by Chinese kids across the country.
